Just in time for Father's Day or Grad Masculine card!   Folded directions:
Large size folded shirt card!
  Cut an 8” x 12” small print B&T, so the design is laying on it’s side.
 Score the paper the long ways 2” from each side and fold it inward, so the edges meet  in the middle of the page. 
Fold the “bottom” of the paper back 1” from the bottom.
Measure 3” from the top fold mark and  bend the paper inward so the tip of the “collar” touches the center point , then unfold the collar and trim ¼” from it. 
Fold the bottom of the card upward and tuck it under the collar by scoring it 5” from the bottom.  
  Next, make a necktie using a 4” x 1” solid cardstock and 1 x1” knot for the top of the tie( with a pop dot under it) .  Make a mini pocket and “handkerchief” , and add a tie bar if you wish!  ( Liquid glass hold the pocket down well. )
On the inside mat two light cardstock messages,  that are 2 ½” x 3 ½” with 3” x4” mats.  
Adhere the top one under the folds that make the collar. 
Fold out the “sleeve of the bottom half starting at about the 4” mark from the bottom.
Use the second piece to cover that and the brad used to mount the optional  tie bar.
Enjoy!
